The Headmaster's Message
Headmaster Peter and Dottie Bragdon attend a fall game.
You have to play better than you
Buster Navins was overheard saying
this at a halftime by David Williams,
when David was a young member of the faculty.
This statement formed the theme of David's speech
at the fall varsity banquet.
Buster's unadorned words not only served teams
of the past but can also guide all members of the
Governor Dummer family as they face new
Articles within this Archon describe current
students and graduates who have chosen the route
urged by Buster in academics, business, athletics,
and public service. Each has chosen to accept new
challenges which demand performing "better than
you know how."

Doing for others in the global village
Dan Hall '47
Adventure with a purpose
Dan 1 [all would say that he
receives rather than gives.
Bui his seemingly insatiable
desire to do lor others fuels
and is fueled by his love of adventure
and of meeting people.
I wo years ago he pursued a dream to
return to Africa, where he had taught
twice before, with his sons Jeff and Ted,
then 23 and 17. "But," Dan says, "we
had to have a purpose. I wanted to do
something and for my sons to do some-
thing beside just go. That's how Habitat
(for Humanity) fit in. I had heard of it;
it's an extremely simple program based
on the concept that everybody should
have a basic, decent place to live. People
in need buy these houses at very low
cost and, along with volunteers, help
"It is also," he says, "a program with
very little bureacracy." He wrote one
letter to an African Episcopal minister
who was organizing Habitat for Humani-
ty in Zambia and the Halls were on their
They flew to Nairobi and boarded a
bus for the five-day trip to Kisulu, Tan-
zania, a small village near Lake Tanga-
"The bus was packed," says Dan. "For
five days we ate bananas and slept sitting
up. There was no air conditioning. Our
backpacks were strapped on top of the
bus, and one was underneath a pile of
dried fish. The smell never came out."
They spent the next 10 days working
on a Habitat project at Kisulu, con-
structing small houses out of red clay or
brick, with cement floors and tin roofs.
"They were pretty basic," Dan says, "but
a big improvement over the more primi-
tive thatched roof huts with which they
coexist. Like their dirt floor coun-
terparts, these houses do not have elec-
tricity or indoor plumbing; the workers
build an outhouse for each."
Their second Habitat experience was
in a remote fishing village in Zambia,
two hours by bus from the capital of
Lusaka. These houses were made of big-
ger bricks made out of mud - because
that's what is available - and white wash-
ed, with tile root--.
There is usually only one American on
Dan Hall's son Ted and other volunteers at Habitat site in Kisulu,
the scene at a Habitat project (while
world-wide, Habitat is based in Ameri-
cus, Georgia), so the Halls were "some-
thing of an oddity. But we worked side
by side with the native volunteers and
the people who will own the homes, and
we were well received."
"There is something about working
together with other people doing physi-
cal labor that is leveling," Dan goes on.
"Suspicions go away quickly. It's just
great. Everyone needs a roof over their
head wherever they live in the world."
Habitat is not a gift program, he em-
phasizes. Each locality has a committee
which raises seed money for the pro-
gram, and decides what the houses will
be like and who is going to get them.
A graduate of Colby College with his
master's from Harvard, Dan first went to
Africa as a teacher in 1960. He was hired
by the United Church of Christ (UCC)
as a lay teacher at a UCC school in
colonial Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), near
the Mozambique border. In 1968 he re-
turned to Africa with his wite Lorrie,
daughters Beth and Meg and son Jeff
(now 27, 24, and 23), and worked for the
Zambian government as a civil servant/
teacher in the copper-mining city of

turned to both communities. Kitwe had
grown from 140,000 to 800,000, some-
thing "characteristic of urban devel-
opment in Africa today," Dan says.
Going back to Zimbabwe 29 years lat-
er "was one of the greatest thrills." One

Last summer, between painting houses
and working as a laboratory assistant in
metallurgy at MIT, he was part of a 10-
student team that travelled to Trinidad
to put brick and stone facing on dormi-
tories at a religious camp. (They original-
ly planned to build a dormitory/shelter
for street women in Port-au-Prince, Hai-
ti, but were diverted by the military

team in the village of Rubio, Venezuela,
to work on a school for children of mis-
sionaries. Both projects were sponsored
by Grace Chapel of Lexington, Massa-
chusetts, and both affirm Adam's sense
"Doing anything other than helping
people," Adam says, "would be a waste
of my talents." He is particularly inter-
ested in civil engineering and thinks the
Third World would be a good place to
do it. "Now that Afghanistan is opening
up," he says, "there is so much opportu-
nity to help rebuild a country. They
need houses, buildings, bridges, canals,

Adam comes by his wanderlust and
concern for others rather naturally. His
parents, Charles and Margaret Barton,
are native Australians who came to the
U.S. for further study - and stayed on to
raise their family. Charles is now rector
of St. James Episcopal Church in Grove-
"Our parents have encouraged us to
help others, individually and collective-
ly," Adam speaks for himself and his
three older brothers! "They've also in-
sisted that we make our own decisions.
They've taught us to be independent."
As a family, for instance, they spend
Christmas and Thanksgiving working at
a soup kitchen in Haverhill. Separately,
they cover the globe.
Adam's brothers, Andrew '83 and
John '84, were born in Australia, and
both graduated in June from Wheaton
College in Illinois. Andrew has served
twice in the Honduras with a Wheaton
mission group and he spent several
months in Pakistan doing mission work
on his own. He is now a first year medi-
cal student at the University of Illinois.
John, whose degreee is in chemistry, is
about to return from Pakistan where he
worked on his own and with SERVE.
Peter '87, a sophomore and an Angier
B. Duke Scholar at Duke University, has
done mission work in Equador, and he
visited Istanbul, Turkey, with a group
from Grace Chapel. He is considering
becoming a medical missionary.
Adam himself has been to Australia
twice as well as the Far East and all 50
"It really does open your eyes," he says
of his travels. "You realize there is so
much out there. Here we go to school

helps you become more selfless. It's hum-
bling. You realize that you're really quite
A Merit Scholarship semi-finalist who
has been on the High Honor Roll every
term at Governor Dummer, Adam is
also GDA's number one cross-country
runner; he placed fourth in the ISL
championships and seventh in the New
Englands in November. After two spring
seasons of running the mile and the two-
mile, he "discovered" the 800 meter run
late last year, and has his sights on the
school record before he graduates.
What then? One option Adam is con-
sidering is Operation Mobilization, a
program that would defer college for a
while, but "give me the chance to get to
know myself a little better." Operation
Mobilization takes students around the
world on two ships - floating colleges of a
sort - for high intensity missionary train-
ing. They put in to African, Latin Amer-
ican and European ports where they
evangelize, work with local radio sta-
tions, and provide a library and other
resources for local church people.

year commitment from its trainees, so

Michael Smith '54, who has been the
government's chief trade negotiator for
the past 10 years, arranged a major con-

be the "most important of the decade."

Despite Bob Bass's aversion to publici-

In the past year, according to Fortune,
his Robert M. Bass Group (RMB) pur-
chased the Westin Hotel chain for $1.53
billion (and sold the flagship Plaza Hotel
in New York to Donald Trump), took
Bell 6k Howell private for $700 million,
offered $1.94 billion to Macmillan pub-
lishers in his first hostile takeover at-
tempt, and was close to a deal with
American Savings and Loan of Califor-
nia, the nation's largest insolvent thrift
bank. All of this happened, the mag-
azine said, without Bass granting a single
interview to the business press.
(Early in 1989 he closed the deal with
American S&d_ for $500 million and he
has since bought 5.6 percent of Hough-
ton-Mifflin, the Boston publishers.)
Bob has become increasingly willing to
endure the limelight in the name of pub-
lic service, however. His first important
cause was I-CARE (Citizen Advocates
for Responsible Expansion), which de-
feated a freeway overpass that would
have encroached on the downtown Fort
Worth historic district. He has also
served on the Texas State Highway
Commission and is chairman of the Na-
tional Trust for Historic Preservation
and of Cook-Fort Worth Children's

him "a guy who desperately wants to
make a difference."

Charles C. "Charlie" Mc-

Thus began ;i life-long interest in the
planning oi cities and parks and in Fred-
erick Law Olmsted, the 19th Century
"landscape architect" who invented the
term, and was responsible for much of
tin greening of cities coast to coast.
Olmsted designed New York's Central
Park and Boston's Fenway, as well as
Prospect and Morningside Parks in New
York, college campuses and more. He
was also an inveterate traveler, social
critic, abolitionist and writer.
Charlie, who was once editor-in-chief
of the Milestone, is editor-in-chief of the
multi-volume The Papers of Frederick Law
Olmsted, thus preserving Olmsted's lega-
cy in black and white, while encouraging
preservation of the green.
Upon graduation from Governor
Dummer in 1947, with a Morse Flag,
First Speaking Prize, and Moody Kent
Prizes for French and English in hand,
Charlie went off to Yale.
From his curiosity about trees along
the streets grew an interest in city plan-
ning and, he says, "Information in all
the roads led to Olmsted." So he did his
senior essay on Olmsted who, inciden-
tally, had been at Yale himself. Then,
"encouraged by a nice prize," Charlie
went on to Harvard where he earned his
Ph.D. and began editing 35 of 25,000
Olmsted papers. He taught at Stanford
(a campus which Olmsted designed),
and, for the past 26 years, has been pro-
fessor of history and American Studies
at The American University in Wash-
ington, D.C., in addition to his work on
the Olmsted papers.
It was at Governor Dummer, he says,
that he gained confidence and enthu-
siasm for teaching. Among his courses
this year are "Great Ideas in America,"
"The Rise of the American City," "The
West in Imagination," a course on his-
torical editing, and "The City in Histo-
ry" ("from the cave to the bomb");
among his students in "American Cultu-
ral History" is fellow GDA alumnus Jon
Blau '87. (Jon earned a "B.")
Prof. Charles McLaughlin '47.
The Papers of Frederick Law Olmsted is
a 12-volume collection of the works of
Hartford-born Olmsted, who combined
a love of traveling and a preoccupation
with agriculture and landscape design.
He was part of the movement to bring
the English "gardenesque school" to
America for the enjoyment of the mid-
dle and working classes, and he designed
more than 80 public parks across the
continent. Among his best works are the
West Wing and grounds of the Capitol
in Washington, D.C.; the grounds of the
1893 World's Columbian Exposition in
Chicago; Prospect Park in Brooklyn;
Morningside and Riverside Parks in
Manhattan; Mount Royal Park in Mon-
treal; the Vanderbilts' "Biltmore" estate
in Asheville, N.C., Washington and
Jackson Parks in Chicago and Belle Isle
Park in Detroit, as well as the compli-
cated Boston park system.
Four volumes of Papers are now in
print. The Formative Years 1822-1852 re-
counts his youth in New England with
vignettes of rural and seafaring life. Slav-
ery and the South was written while he
toured the South as correspondent for
the Xeu York Times. Creating Central
Park 1857-1861 tells about the nation's
most complex landscape design project.
The Civil War Letters 1861-63 was writ-
ten when he was executive director of
the Sanitary Commission (appointed by
President Lincoln), and funneling sup-
plies to the Union Army.
Volume V, The California Years 1863-
1865, went to press November 1 and will
be available in the fall. These papers
were written while Olmsted was the first
commissioner of Yosemite National
Park, and running a gold mine. Close
behind is Olmsted and Vaux in New York
1865-72, basically about the design of
Central Park. Volume VII will be about
Boston, where Olmsted created the fa-
mous "emerald necklace" which includes
Arnold Arboretum and Franklin Park.
Charlie's involvement with Olmsted
parks goes beyond editing; he is active in
the National Association for Olmsted
Parks, a group dedicated to their preser-
vation and to fending off development.
"Practically every park system in the
country needs protection," he says. "The
pressures are tremendous."
Charlie and his wife, whom he met in
the fourth grade at Shady Hill School in
Cambridge, live in Chevy Chase,
Maryland., where Ann does her writing.
She has just completed her first novel,
Lightning in July, based on their experi-
ences in Boston in the 1950s, when they

Henry Eaton sees rock and TV news as similar
By Dean Johnson*
Old rock 'n' rollers never die
they . . . just become tele-
vision news reporters.
At least that's the case for
WLVI-TV (Channel 56) beat reporter
A dozen years ago the clean-cut Eat-
on, now in his mid-30s, had hair down
to his waist and was known to rockers
around Boston as Cadillac Jack.
He was a guitarist and vocalist in Duke
and the Drivers, one of the grittiest r&b
bar bands the area has ever produced.
Duke and the Drivers released two al-
bums on a national label, had a local
Top 10 hit, and opened shows for the
likes of Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers
and Deep Purple.
Some people might marvel at the way
Eaton has adjusted to two very different
worlds: rock 'n' roll and television news.
He doesn't see it that way.
"I think there's a gross misconception
that once you're in rock 'n' roll, you
never get out and that you destroy your
life in the process. Don't misconstrue
television as the real world," he stressed.
"It's marginally more sane and de-
pendable than rock 'n' roll. But in some
ways it's like jumping out of the frying
pan into the fire. Anyone who thinks
doing television is like working in a bank
is crazy. Working in television means
crazy hours in a a crazy business where
your job is always insecure.
"They (TV news and the music busi-
ness) are similar in that both have some-
thing to do with entertainment. The
glamour element in what I do now,
though, is completely nonexistent to my
days with the band."
But Eaton also pointed out some simi-
larities between the two fields. "Onstage
you have good nights and bad nights.
On television, I have nights when I'm
effective, and others when I didn't quite
Eaton was a student at Harvard when
Duke and the Drivers took off. "In good
conscience," Eaton recalled, "I really
had a choice to make. My head was in
school, but my heart was in the band."
In those battles, the heart usually
wins, so Eaton left Harvard to pursue
rock 'n' roll on a full-time basis. Then
something happened that has stopped
dozens of local bands dead in their
"We just flat-out made bad business
decisions," he explained.
So he enrolled at Boston University,
discovered journalism, and finally grad-
uated from college in 1980, 10 years after
he first enrolled at Harvard.
Eaton's early television jobs included a
stint as a news intern at Channel 5.
"Having gone from limousines and play-
ing at Boston Garden to making coffee
and ripping copy off the wires at Chan-
nel 5 helped to center me. It gave me
balance about what I was doing now."
He became a news producer at Chan-
nel 5, then moved to Providence to es-
cape "ghosts" in Boston and to get expe-
rience as a reporter in front of the
Now Eaton is back in the city where
he was once part of its rock royalty, and
he hasn't forgotten.

"The issue was far more complicated
than humane treatment, however," says
True, president of the 5,000-member
Massachusetts Farm Bureau. "Of course
we favor humane treatment for farm ani-
mals. But we already have regulations."
Question #3 would have duplicated laws
already in effect and created more bu-
reaucracy, he says, including an advisory
board of veterinarians and animal scien-
tists - but no farmers.
Gordon thus became chairman of a
"Vote No" group called the "Massachu-
setts Committee to Save the Family
The threat to the family farm, he ex-
plains, lay basically in the additional bu-
reaucratic regulations and compliance
costs the question would have caused. In
Massachusetts, he says, finances are such
that "the option of not staying in busi-
ness is becoming somewhat attractive to
small farmers. The small farm economy
is fragile. We're competing more and
more with products from other areas of
the country. We don't need to be
hassled by our own state."
Animal farming is on the decline more
than any other type of farming, he adds.
The dairy business, a backbone of the
farm industry in the state, is particularly
having trouble, as milk is increasingly
being shipped in from other parts of the
Diversified and specialty farms (cran-
berries, for instance) are doing better,
and retail farms that sell directly to the
consumer, such as Price's Ingaldsby
Farm in Boxford, seem to be holding
their own. However, Gordon says, "a
decline in farms affects all of us. Fewer
farmers will result in fewer suppliers -
such as farm equipment - for the rest."

With the Farm Bureau behind the
"Save the Family Farm" group, as well as
the Department of Agriculture, the Mas-

Cruelty to Animals and the Animal Res-
cue League, "Vote No" signs appeared
across the state. A farm stand is an ideal

On Election Day, "Vote No" pickets
were carried at some 1500 of the 2000

had defeated the question by 70%.
Price's Ingaldsby Farm sells home-
grown fruits and vegetables, namely
sweet corn, green beans, tomatoes, and
pick-your-own strawberries and apples -
and now frozen apple pies. To round out
the product line they buy some produce,
such as lettuce from California or Cana-
da, at the Boston wholesale market. But

P'75 grew up on the farm their parents
had started in 1928. Their mother's
maiden name was Ingalls (hence
"Ingaldsby"), and she ran the farm after
Gordon's father died in 1934.
At Governor Dummer, "Pricy," as he
was called then, played football and la-
crosse and ran track. He went on to earn
a B.S. in geology at the University of
Massachusetts, then came home to the
Occasionally, over the years, he has
thought about trying another career.
"But when I look into it," he says, "I
think I'm pretty lucky at not having to
get into the traffic and other hassles."
He likes nothing better than to "see a
good healthy field of something grow-
ing . . . nice and clean, no weeds," and
two of their four children, Tom and Ca-
therine, now run the farm. Gordon
works "when 1 want to."
Gordon is also related to four GDA
graduates: the late Tom Manley '54 was
his wife Susan's brother; Mary Anne
Meyers Polich 75 is his sister Anne's

John Carroll takes his seat
John Carroll '62 was sworn into the
State Senate of Vermont on January 5,
one of three senators for Windsor Coun-
ty, 30 overall. The legislative session will
run four days a week through May, then
reconvene in January of 1990 for anoth-
er six months.
The main issues coming up: health
care and insurance, affordable housing
and the deteriorating state transporta-
tion system, as well as the state financial
"I feel like I'm going into my freshman
year at college," John says. "It's all an
incredibly exciting prospect."
He will commute an hour and a quar-
ter over the hills from his home in Nor-
wich to Montpelier, and snow plow all
night as the season requires. Most legis-
lators have work they have to tend to,
he says, "and my plowing business can't
very well be put on auto pilot."
One downside of his election is that he
will have to give up coaching lacrosse at
Hanover (New Hamphsire) High School.
The team had its best record (13-2) in
history last spring, "and we had 18 re-
turning lettermen. They are in for one
Meanwhile . . .
Scott Williams 74 did not win the
U.S. House seat from the 1st District of
New Hampshire, but he continues as
vice-chairman of the Democratic Party
in the Granite State, and he was pleased
"with the attention his campaign brought
to the health care woes of the elderly.
Future political plans: undecided.
Mark Starr '65 got his post-election
vacation: a few weeks in Florida. "I
could have used a few years," he says,
after following candidate Michael Duka-
kis coast to coast as Boston Bureau chief
for Newsweek . Mark is now "looking in
my own back yard (New England) for
major news stories - something I haven't
been able to do for the past year."
"I don't think politics will be a major
part of what I do," he adds, though he
does predict a "good governor's race in
As GDA went . . .
GDA students participated in the Na-
tional Mock Election sponsored by Time
Magazine and C-Span early in Novem-
ber, and the results were somewhat por-
George Bush beat Mike Dukakis 127
to 111 (or 53% to 47% versus 54%-46%
nationally); Democrat Ted Kennedy
beat Republican Joe Malone for U.S.
Senate 80-38 (two to one in real life); and
Nick Mavroules beat Paul McCarthy for
U.S. Representative, 38-33.
One of the surprises, says senior Rick
Fox who ran the election, was the num-
ber of students who claimed to be Inde-
pendents. Asked what party they con-
sidered themselves to belong to, 172
students responded like so: Republican,
51; Democrat, 43; Independent, 66; and
"I think," Fox says, "it may be because
they live in a liberal part of the country -
New England - but they have been ex-
posed to a lot of negativism in the Presi-

Who we are
The 330 students at Governor Dum-
mer this year come from 23 states and 10
countries. They include 199 boys and
131 girls; 220 boarders and 110 day stu-
dents; and 87 seniors, 90 juniors, 94
sophomores and 59 freshmen.
The 124 new students represent one of
the most geographically diverse groups
in recent years.
In addition to Hyun Ri Shin and new-
comer Kyu Hahn of Korea, internation-
al students hail from Canada, Grand
Cayman, Venezuela, England, Mexico,
Thailand, Germany, Kenya and Tai-
Frost Library and the entire school
community are benefitting enormously
from two programs sponsored by the
Governor Dummer Allies. More than
$1300 toward new books was received
through their annual Buy-a-Book pro-
gram during Parents Weekend. Then on
November 5, the Literary Lion Auction
grossed more than $18,000 toward
equipment and books and other materi-
als for the resource center.
Book gifts of $25 or more in honor or
in memory of a student, alumnus/a or
faculty member, continue to be accepted
on an on-going basis. A donor may spec-
ify a book of choice. Please contact Mrs.
Charles Kriebel, 45 Downing Road, Pea-
body, MA 01960.
Parents in education
Governor Dummer Academy has an
impressive number of educator-parents:
61 are involved in education in some
way. At the college or university level
are 10 professors, two administrators
and one researcher; at independent sec-
ondary schools are one headmaster,
three department heads, seven teachers
and one administrator (plus three mas-
ters/administrators at GDA); and at in-
dependent lower schools are one head-
master and six teachers. At public
schools are two principals, 20 teachers
and one administrator.
• Involved in education in other capaci-
ties are four secretaries, a nurse, a school
psychologist, three librarians - and at
least two full-time graduate students.
In six families, both parents are educa-

Nine seniors have been elected to the
national Cum Laude society as the result
of their records here so far, and four of

ca of New York City. They are in the
top 10% of their class, and they have
started a tutoring program for fellow stu-
dents. They will be joined by additional
member-designates in the spring.
The Annual Fund
The 1988-89 Annual Fund has
reached $425,000 in gifts and pledges
toward a $600,000 goal.
The Annual Fund accounts for 12 per-
cent of the current operating budget,
and provides the margin of excellence -
the difference between tuition and the
actual cost of the GDA experience.
According to Christopher E. Harlow,
director of Annual Giving, that differ-
ence in 1988-89 is about $1,796.
The Annual Fund, he says, has an
immediate impact on scholarship aid,
classroom resources, faculty salaries and
enrichment, programs, facilities, arts and
Timothy E. Greene '50 is overall chair-
man of the Annual Fund. Heading up
the Parents Fund portion are David and
Elayne Weener P'90 of Andover, and
class chairmen Guy Scott P'90, Creigh-
ton Gatchell P'91 and John Kavanagh
Senior parents fund
The 1989 Senior Parents Fund will
complete the endowment of a Young
Master Chair begun by the Class of '88.
Their goal is $125,000 toward the
$240,000 needed to fund the Chair,
which will honor and encourage a tal-
ented young teacher.
The Senior Parents Fund Committee,
headed by David Newbert, includes
team captains Gerry Ashworth, Pat Der-
rickson, Paul O'Keefe and Paul Sullivan,
and 17 parents as solicitors.
Language master/distance coach Da-
vid Absumara qualified for the Boston

over-40 master. Running his third fastest
marathon ever, Abu was 45th of 170
finishers, and ninth among the master
finishers. French master Laurel Abusam-

were there to cheer him on and keep
him posted on his times along the route.

out of the New England's with an injury;
and newcomer Kate Atkins, a Newbury-

Senior Adam Barton of Groveland
was named men's cross-country MVP,
having run fourth of 110 in the ISL
championships and seventh of 166 in the
New Englands. He was a unanimous ISL

England. The varsity men, who started
the season with only three returning
runners, were 3-8 in regular season
meets, eighth in the ISLs and 16th of 20
teams in the New Englands.

The women's soccer team "came on
strong at the end," said coach Ken Ca-
sazza, winning or tying their last seven
games for a 6-5-2 record overall.
Co-captains Courtney Seed and Shan-

were named co-MVPS. Seed, a senior
from North Andover, scored 19 of the
team's 38 goals for the season, while Da-

Both were unanimous choices for the
ISL All-Star team, Seed for the third
year and Davenport for the second.
Men '5 soccer
The men's soccer team played "a lot
better than the record showed," said
coach Mike Karin of the 3-9-3 season.
Co-captain Kevin Lydon of Marblehead
was MVP; a senior and leading scorer
for the past three years, he was named
All-League for the second year and Hon-
orable Mention to the State Prep School
The Buster Navins Trophy, named for
the former master and founder of soccer
at Governor Dummer Academy 51 years

. . . and we kept standing up. Even in
the last game against Belmont Hill,
when we were down to 20, the team
found it in themselves to come back to a

the final minutes.
MVP was "powerful blocker and run-

Plante was named to the All-League sec-

GDA's varsity hockey team, 1988 ISL-

champs, stepped into the "big time" this
year, and coach Larry Piatelli feels very
good about the change.
While they dropped to seventh among
nine teams with a 5-10-1, the Governors
were competing against "the best" in the
ISL's Keller Division, considered by
many to be America's top hockey con-
ference (Belmont Hill, Thayer, St.
Paul's, Lawrence, St. Sebastian's,
BB&N, Milton, Nobles).
"For the boys it was a very exciting
and challenging move," says Piatelli.
"The competition at this level is so much
greater. They had to play at their best all
He named senior goalie Alex Moody
MVP for being "the backbone of the
team for four years." Moody was a unan-

Piatelli says, "is that we won five games

Art. The gardens on his farm in Newbury suffered

Art stepped into a woodchuck hole and rather
severely wrenched his right leg and hip so that it

Those of you who haven't given us the word,
give it a lot of thought. A great program has been
planned, and as you can see from the above, many
of your old buddies will be on hand to reminisce
and swap tall tales. Incidentally, when you send in
your reply, tell us what you've been doing so we

QE2 and returned on the Concorde. Guess he's
still working at something or other, too.
Spence Brewster is retired from whatever he
was doing and, with his wife and kids, has 16
horses and runs a riding school in Plymouth, Mass.
From what we gather, he's considered a stable

George Simson, who lives in Hilton Head,

temperature got down to 31 degrees F one day last
winter. Up here in Vermont, George, that's a high
for the year!
Thayer Richardson divides his year between
West Melbourne, Fla., and Essex, Mass., and so
the timing of the reunion is just right. He is
looking forward to meeting the 'old' gang.
Carl Germain has just retired from Lawn-Boy
of Atlanta and is living in Barefoot Bay, Fla. He
loves the leisure life and doubtless has someone
else mowing his lawn with a you-know-what mow-
er. He says he's not attending the reunion, but
maybe he'll change his mind. New England can be
mighty nice in the summer.

I'd like to make this column as interesting as
possible and, therefore, would like each of you to
fill me in on what's going on so I can get it in the
Archon for all to see. Even what you might consid-
er trivia is welcome. Let's keep in touch with each
other and then all join together in June to raise our
cups on high. At this early date, 22 classmates out
of 46 we can account for have indicated they'll be
coming back. That's 47% of the class! We know
more of you will be on hand as several have said

Sam Robbins writes from West Newton, Mass.,
that he and his wife have been "digging old paint-

and the Brockton Art Museum is doing it through
March 26. GDA's gallery will have an exhibition
of them sometime in the months ahead."

A good, long phone talk with Bob Pickett

his Community Association. Like your Secretary,
Bob can hardly wait till his term is over in January
so he can return to the joys of a nine hole golf
course which is part of his community in Leesburg,
Fla. Bob sounds -great, but his accent seems more
New Englandy than I remember - perhaps due to
his years at Governor Dummer, Yale and Harvard!
Bill Kirkpatrick retired January 1 from his
bank position in Portland, and is looking forward
to travel, skiing and golf. He partook in a GDA

Ed Tarbell and I have tried to guess how many
of our class will be coming back for our 45th Reun-
ion in June. We decided a phone call to some of
you more stubborn ones might help, so be pre-
pared to hear from us!
Our plans, still in their infancy, include a golf
tournament to be run by Gordon Hoyt, tennis
and a cocktail party at my house before the clam
bake at the school on Saturday, the 17th. Being
able to stay in the dorms is a super reunion format.
Now, the news:
Tarbell saw Homer Gibbs this summer at
Boothbay Harbor, Maine; Homer was on one sail-
boat and Ed on another. They had dinner aboard
Ed's Hestrel. Ed also had Jim Lothrop aboard for
a sail. Then . . . Jim was going to look up Homer.
Courtland Cross told us he had three Packards
and a Pierce Arrow he chases all over the country

Bud Lawson is loving his engineering consult-

return for the 45th. If he doesn't, his ex-roommates
Pearson and Hoyt will find a way to punish him.
Those who have said "yes" to returning so far
are Tarbell, Pearson, Hoyt, Bill Campbell, Den-
nis Andersen, Al Wyer and John Whitney.
We have "maybes" from Warren Perkins, Len

Franc Skirball, who drove from Tulsa, Okla.,

Irv Williamson reports, "I retired last February
from Norton Company after 33 years as general
manager of two different units - small vitrified
grinding wheels and sharpening stones. Ethel and I
are in good health and expect to continue our
participation in the Worcester Chorus and get
further involved with our four grandchildren, ages
8 to 12. My brother Ray '47 still lives in Old
Greenwich, Conn., and owns a dry-cleaning busi-

continue to live in the same general area."

Sy Symonds enclosed the following note in his
Christmas cards: "At the end of this past April I
had a realtively mild stroke. It affected the left side
of my body. Being left handed, I've had to learn to
do all of the essentials with my right hand. As well
as writing, shaving, eating, combing my hair,
brushing my teeth, etc. are also problems. Other
than for those things I'm doing quite well, After a
one-week stay in the hospital I had six weeks of
physical therapy which helped to recover about 90-
100% of all buy my left forearm and hand. Nauti-
lus three days a week plus swimming and dailv
hand exercises are enabling the improvement to
continue. Hopefully, with all this exercise, I'll be in
the best shape of my life. I hope my legs are any-
way, because this winter I plan to do a lot of skiing.
I should have the time for it because on November
1, I took early retirement - three years before I
expected to. The stroke started me thinking about
what's really important in life and I realized it was
time to 'smell the roses.' Prior to the stroke I had
been working extremely long hours for two to
three years - it left me with little time or energy to
do what is really satisfying and important. One
thing that suffered was keeping contact with
friends. If you haven't heard from me lately, maybe
this will explain why. At any rate, I hope to begin
correcting that soon. I hope you have a wonderful
1989. Please let me hear from you.

The Class of '62 is alive and well and living in
various parts of California, at least. At last glance
in the alumni directory ('84 edition) there were
eight of our class living in California. Randy
Hust, John Dorr, John Fenn and Jim O'Dea
were all in the southern part of the state. Tay
Vaughan, Jim Gordon, Mark Johnson and I
were in the San Francisco Bay area. I would be
interested to know if that list has changed in the
past four years. Speak out guys. Let us know where
you are and what's happening.
1 had the good fortune to attend a GDA alumni
gathering recently in San Francisco. Among the
attendees were W. Tay Vaughan III and Mark
Johnson with their wives. Tay runs a small con-
sulting firm to small companies in the area in a
computer-related field. Mark retired as a lieutenant
commander in the Navy in March and did a six-
month consulting stint in Hawaii. He has taken on
a new profession as, I believe, the operations man-
ager for a large produce and beverage wholesaler/
distributor near his home in Pittsburg (that's Cali-
fornia!). Sorry to be so vague on such important
facts as one's profession but I ran out of napkins on
which to write down the information at the party.
The class of '62 was well represented with easily an
eighth to a sixth of those present.
The atmosphere at the cocktail party was fab-
ulous. Along with Headmaster Peter Bragdon, di-
rector of development Stu Chase and admissions
director Mike Moonves was Art Sager and his
wife. Art was along to give his usual, eloquent plug
for the school. His memory for days of yore was
uncanny. I was pleased to know that he really
didn't remember my singing ability. I owe a great
debt of gratitude to Steve Blair for his expertise
and patience with me, and Burke Leahy and
Denis Golden for their great voices. I was always
grateful that they sang so close to me. They all lead
the way for me with their talent. Art and I were
recalling the Glee Club concert in Symphony Hall
with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. A record
was made of the event. I used to have one, but I am
unable to put my finger on it. If you have a copy
will you please make a cassette recording for Art
and send it along to him c/o the Academy. He
would be ever so grateful.
At alumni gatherings I am always reminded
about how special those four years were for me. I
was a young 14-year-old from New Jersey back in
1958. It was guys like Art, along with the likes of
Heb Evans, Bob Anderson, Dave Williams and Bill
Sperry, to name a few, that made the difference for
me. It was also Cy Hoover, Colin Studds and
Burke Leahy that were there to lean on when I
needed it too. I rarely stop to think about what I
took away from Old Byfield until I have meetings
like these to give that past time some perspective. I
hope you will all keep an eye on your calendar for
the GDA reception when it comes your way. It's
really worth it.
I am sure that the posting in a recent commu-
nique from the Academy was incorrect regarding
the Class of '62s participation in the Annual Fund
this year. Our results must be like the election
results on the West Coast, last to come in because
of the time difference. We were listed as 0% partici-
pation. I know that I am not the best about getting
my contribution into the mail right away. That
sure got the attention of my conscience. I quickly
slapped a check in the envelope in hopes of boost-
ing the percentage. Hope you will do the same.
This column will reach you after the first of the
year. Hope that the holidays were pleasant for you
and your family. It is still quite hard to conjure up
my memories of a New England Christmas when I
look out at the flowers still blooming in the back
yard, but I always do reflect back. I still have the
"sand in my shoes" as my mother on the Cape
always says, that serves as the reminder. Happy
New Year to all.
Bob Fullerton, Secretary
T'was a slow period for the mail and only two,
well, no, three items arrived. Although they were
addressed to me, I trust it will be permissible to
share them with the rest of the Class (and I sincere-

and their retaining of the overall character of the

starting kindergarten, Marysia in preschool, my

After 12 years in Vancouver, Bob adds that he
still is "not used to rainy winters."
Chad Smith sent in the second item, a beautiful
postcard of the scenery around his home - Arcadia
National Park. Chad said: "I want to thank you for
putting so much effort into stimulating enthusiasm
for last Spring's GDA reunion. (Got to set the
record straight, Chad. Rusty hlavins, Bill Shane,
Teddy Cook and a number of others that I am not
even aware of 'cause I was unable to be there, did a
great deal of pre-reunion planning and telephon-
ing. Additionally, a tremendous amount of
'Thanks' is owed to Stu Chase and Chris Harlow
of the Development Office who made sure all activ-
ities flowed smoothly. Ed.) I gather you were very
successful in your efforts!

season. Metz expects Bucknall will be drafted; some commentators are
predicting a 10-year professional career. "He's always been a good de-
fensive player," Metz says, (< and he has come along offensively as well."
Hello to everyone from Five College Valley.
Hampshire is crazy as usual and I see lots of people
from GDA around the area. Every once in a while
I see Hyun Ri Shin at Amherst College. He seems
to be having a great time there and zips around the
place in his new car. A bit of advice . . . STAY
OFF THE ROAD when Hyun Ri is on it!
Cindy Draper is loving Mt. Holyoke, and
meeting lots of men in uniform. Steve Kim is at
UMass; the last time I talked to him he was await-
ing the first snowfall so he could participate in the
traditional UMass snowball attack on Amherst
College. Watch out Hyun Ri!.
I recently took a trip up to Skidmore College to
visit Jeff Feldman, Eric Gilman and Dave Wa-
lor. They all seemed to be pretty happy, and Eric's
ferret is still alive and running around like crazy.
Jimmy Cliff was playing there, and we all had a
great time. Right, Dave? Watch out, guys; I'll defi-
nitely be up again. Downtown Saratoga Springs,
introduced by Jeff, was an experience not to be
missed. Thanks again.
What I've really enjoyed this fall are all the
phone calls and letters I've received. I recently got
a letter from Mark Juba who is having a wild time
at Florida State University. He sees a lot of Bob
Alperin, who is at Tulane. Bob is pledging Sigma
Chi fraternity and has tons of connections with
GDA alumni there. Mark says, "When FSU
crushed Tulane in football I visited him, and we
had a sick time. (Actually, only I got sick.) I was
watching the Dodgers clinching the Mets when the
phone rang. I picked it up and heard an obnoxious
laugh. At once, I knew it was Kursten Burns."
I've heard from Kursten also. He is playing foot-
ball and frolicking around California, although he
actually admits to missing the East. (Sorry,
Kursten, I couldn't resist.) Mark also mentioned
talking to Stutz Plaisted, who is having "too
much fun at Salem State, according to his grades."
Jon Morisseau and Jim Sullivan are having a
great time at Franklin 6k Marshall and Boston
Many of the class of '88 have gone on to contin-
ue their sports careers at college. Kris Fowler had
a successful time with the varsity field hockey team
at Harvard and was starting by the end of the
season. Lisa Sweeney also made the varsity field
hockey team at the University of Iowa and even
scored some important goals in some important
games. (OK, so I don't know the details . . . ) Joe
Bailey made the varsity football team at UNC-
Chapel Hill. Joe loves the long practices and wind
sprints the best.
Heather Hinrichs is having an amazing time
in Nepal. She is learning the language and living
with a family in Katmandu. Nichola Krasnake-
vich is having a fun time in Switzerland, and says
that Europe is very different from the U.S. Chris
Zabriskie is loving Scotland, and is even devel-
oping some sort of brogue. He went off to the coast
of Spain for a week in December (rough life!).
Chris also declares that since the ale over there is
way too expensive, he and some friends are going
to start their own brewing company. Some things
never change . . .
Of course, some things do change. Recent Aca-
demy Prize winner Kara Moheban was called to
the dean of students at Boston College for having a
loud party in her room! Better calm down, Kara!
Todd O'Brien wrote that "Everything here at U.
Rochester is fine. Ted Smith and I are on the
same floor and see Michelle LaFlamme and
Christina Dalessio all the time. We are all doing
well, although there is a lot of work."
Jen Petscheck is doing a lot of sailing at Wil-
liam Smith and travels around the East Coast
competing in various events with her crew, which
sounds like a pretty wild bunch. Wayne Belleau
made the varisty hockey team at the University of
Southern Maine and is having a good time play-
ing. Paul Bucci wrote from the University of
Rhode Island, "On my first exam of my college
career, I got an A! It was even in pre-cal, thanks to
Mr. Shea." Matt Caron is also playing varsity
hockey, at Babson, and yes, even has his head
Pat Colgate called from Weaver State in Utah
and said, "Everyone is Mormon! Weaver kind of
reminds me of GDA." Heidi Danielson is out
West too. Last time I heard from her she was
having a pretty good time at her birthday party.
Heidi is going to the University of Washington at
That's all for now. I'd love to hear from every-
one. Keep in touch and have a great winter.

Lisa Sweeney '88 on Big 10 Team
A year ago about now, school president Lisa Sweeney of
Texas was taking a breather from sports and rehearsing
for the lead role of Ensign Nellie Forbush in South Pacific.
Along with classmate Kristen Fowler, she had recently
accepted the field hockey MVP and had been named Prep
All American by the U.S. Field Hockey Association.
Now she is a full-fledged Iowa Hawkeye and a member
of the Number 2 collegiate field hockey team in the
country. Division I. Big time.
Lisa went off to the University of Iowa because of the
reputation of its field hockey team. She not only made the
varsity as a freshman, but played a major role on it. She
played in all 23 regular season games, scoring three goals
and three assists overall. She scored two and two in Big 10
conference play, and her team ended up second behind
Northwestern. The Hawkeyes, however, came back to
beat Northwestern in the NCAA Division I Regionals,
and went on to the "Final 4" in Philadelphia the weekend
before Thanksgiving. They edged out Northeastern 2-1 in
the semi-finals, but lost 1-0 to Old Dominion in the
David Moore '86 starts for B.C.
David Moore, a 1986 graduate, has played two seasons
of varsity for the Boston College Eagles, starting defensive
tackle. Their season ended in a rather spectacular way: a
38-24 win over Army in, of all places, Dublin, Ireland.
They played in front of 42,000 fans in the first annual
Emerald Isle Classic, and it was a major win in an
otherwise so-so season (2-7 in regular play) for the Eagles.
Army was 8-1 going into the game.
Moore, at six-feet-seven and 220 pounds was one of the
biggest players on the BC squad. Red-shirted as a
freshman, he picked up steam as a sophomore and was a
starter this year. He is a general management major in
B.C.'s School of Management.
At GDA he had been a two-year ISL All-Star and
played in the Shriners' Classic after his senior year. He
was also Newburyport Daily News Player of the Year and
All America honorable mention. He was an All-Star
center in basketball, and captain of the track team.
David is the son of GDA science master David Moore
and Mrs. Ada Dolloff. His sister Heather is an '88
